BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- An 18-month-old boy is recovering at a local hospital after his mother found him floating face down in his family's swimming pool.

Buffalo firefighters were called to a home on Swan Street just before 8 p.m. Tuesday night for a report of an unresponsive toddler.

When firefighters arrived, the boy was conscious and breathing on his own.

Officials said the boy was wearing arm-floats and was face down in the water for about 15 to 30 seconds.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for observation.
